Was Einstein wrong? Scientists maintain their faster-than-light finding still holds

GENEVA (AP) - The chances have risen that Einstein was wrong about a fundamental law of the universe. Scientists at the world's biggest physics lab said on Friday they have ruled out one possible error that could have distorted their startling measurements that appeared to show particles traveling faster than light. Many physicists reacted with scepticism in September when measurements by French and Italian researchers seemed to show subatomic neutrino particles breaking what Nobel Prize-winning physicist Albert Einstein considered the ultimate speed barrier. The European Organization for Nuclear Research said more precise testing has now confirmed the accuracy of at least one part of the experiment. 'One key test was to repeat the measurement with very short beam pulses,' the Geneva-based organisation, known by its French acronym Cern, said in a statement.
